With this kind of book I don't really have a high expectation of it's literary merits, or even of a challenging mystery to solve. This is just casual, fun reading to me, a vacation of sorts, but I have to admit that this one was a little frustrating to me, because I had figured out who the murderer was early in the story and I found it annoying how long the rest of them took to find out (the only thing keeping me going was the fact that there was a free sewing pattern at the end of the book which I felt I had to earn by actually reading the whole thing...so no skipping ahead for me!).
Not that I have written off this series. I will, the next time I feel like it, go back and revisit The Southern Sewing Circle, because at heart, I am just a crafty, gossipy gal who loves a little murder mystery every now and then.
